    Default Add A Second Line To Your iPhone with Line2


    For only $15 a month, you can apparently add a second line to your iPhone. Using the new Application Line2, and VoIP provider Toktumi, that will allow you to have a fully functioning second line, including visual voicemail. This could be ideal for small business users, and for those of you that really love to talk.

    The service is available in US and Canada and comes with the first month FREE. The following month's are billed in at $14.95. The appstore seems to contradict some pricing points, but if you head over to Toktumi's website, you can see the price rates there.

    Most of the VOIP apps available on the AppStore require a WiFi connection, but in the case of Line2, this app will work on both WiFi and 3G. There is also a plethora of features bundled in as well, including call waiting and call transfer, conference calling with up to 20 people, and integration with Toktumi's hosted PBX service.

    No Cell Reception at Home or Work? Cell bills too high? Line2 adds a second number to your iPhone that works over 3G, WiFi or Cellular networks.

    Make and receive calls no matter where you are - using VoIP when you can, and cellular when necessary - all from the same number.

    Your phone will automatically detect the cheapest way to make a call - you don't have to think about it. Ideal if you have poor cell reception at your home or office or just want to reduce your cell bill.

    Comes packed with powerful features - combines the best elements of Skype and Google Voice, but adds business-grade features, reliability, and live customer support.

    Try it free for 30 days, then pay just $14.95/month for unlimited US/Canada calling and ultra-low cost international calling from your iPhone.

    That Thanks button is there for a reason!

    The BIG question is if this app, like all unjailbroken iPhone VOIP apps, runs in the back ground? What use is a 'second line' is only works when your phone is on and running no other programs and therefore is only useful for out going calls? I'm hanging out for a good IAX2 VOIP client the runs all the time, or even a SIP client. I have only found one IAX2 client that works but is of no practical use for incoming calls.

    I imagine that they use call forwarding for incoming calls

    does anyone know if the app will ring if it is open when a call comes in? Or does it push a message to the app that a call is coming in when the app is not open?

    This would be a really cool app if the first line worked like it should (no dropped calls, etc...)

    It Clearly said this is voip. Apple was made by the FCC not to
    deny viop back in early 2009. GV is NOT viop.

    Not hard to understand.

    Well, if someone invites you it is instantaneous. there was a google voice invite thread i saw on somethingawful.com except you need a membership to post.. you may have luck on irc or a google group

    Thanks anolis. How do you forward back to the original visual voice mail if I want to change back?


    So here's how I set it up:

    1. Set up line2 number
    2. Connect to WiFi with StayAwake SB setting ON
    3. Keep Line2 running with backgrounder
    4. Currently, when I am in an area where there is no good cellular reception, I forward my ATT number to my Line2 number.


    I am trying to figure out the ATT GSM commands to forward missed calls to my Line2 number instead of to my voicemail. That way I don't have to forward and unforward my ATT number. If I miss a call because of bad GSM reception, it will automatically go to my Line2 number/app. If that isn't available, then the call will go to my Line2 visual voice mail.

    Once I figure out the second part, I'll let you know how it works.

    Jon

    Even though google voice is free you could be waiting for months before you get a invite! At this time I am looking for someone that has a invite.....

    So whats good about it if you have to wait and wait for a invite?
